Profile:

I have been a resident of Toodyay for 45 years, initially venturing as a High School maths and social science teacher. I am retired, married and with my husband, Rob have run a farming business.

I have three married children, who have settled with their families into varied rural life styles. When the children were young, I was the primary carer, but continued to study. I completed a Diploma in Multimedia, Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and Certificate IV in Small Business Management, which led to employment as a TAFE lecturer in Information Technology. I have also completed a Certificate in Settlement Procedures.

In the community, I have been a volunteer with St Johns, delivering first aid training and a Girl Guide leader. I have also been a member of the Theatre Group.

I see my role as a councillor as a representative of the community, facilitating open, transparent communication between the Council and the community. It also involves supporting local business, sustainable growth, promoting a rural lifestyle and protecting our environment.
